The An.ustralasian Record, and Emigration Journal. New South Wales, Van Diemen's Land, Western Australia, Port L'hillip, South Australia, New Zealand, Cape of Good Hope, &c. Published every alternate Saturday THE want of an organ to bring the advantages of Emigration to these colonies before the labouring classes of this country has been seriously felt. New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land have attained a degree of pros perity hitherto unequalled. T'he younger settlements have created an extraordi nary demand for labourers. The future progress of all these colonies is now dependent on the amount and character of the emigration directed to their shores, and they are now in a condition to receive and employ fifty thousand families annually. Upon these facts it has been deter mined that the paper hitherto known as the " SouTI AUSTItALIAN R~ECOtn," and established in .1837, should, under the above title, extend its advocacy of Emigration to all the Australasian Colonies, withou...
CONSTANTINOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 January 1842
CONSTANTINOPLE. Oiie of theýTurkish transports, loa ded wvith troops for the coast of Syria, has put -back to the Dardanelles under curious circumstances. It appears that the trbops, being unaccustomed to the sea, became alarmed as soon as rough weather came on, and insisted upon the pilot's putting back. On his refusal, they drew their swords and killed him. About a dozen persons took to the boat to get away from such company the boat capsised, and they were all drowned. The ship was then run into the Dardanelles, where, by last accounts she was still lying. These troops were redif (militia). The Egyp tian frigate, which lately arrived here full of prisoners was, on the passage from Syria, the scene of dreadful dis tress. She had 1400 Egyptians on board, besides a Turkish crew, and the captain hit upon a must inhuman man ner of getting money. He sold the water !-snch of the unhpapy wretches as had no money to buy it were left to die of thirst.! ! Out of the niumber upwards of 400 t...

THE ABSENT MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 January 1842
T?lE ABSENT MAN.o Old Thornton, when from home, would put on his clean shirts one after another, omitting the customary process of first taking off thei soiled ones. As he walked about whilst he shaved him self, it will not surprise the reader to hear that he tfrequently went forth half margin and half lather.. He gener ally in dressing put both his stockings on one leg, and then wondered where the deuce the other stocking could be. Mrs Thornton was taking a three day's trip to the land of frogs, and T., who remained at Dover, went to the post office to enquire if there were any letters, when this colloquy occurred T.-" Any letters for me, Sir?" Office keeper-" What name, Sir ?" T.-"Dear me, in the multiplicity of my affairs, I cannot recollect; I'll call again." i'assing down the street, ticher met him, and saluted him with a "I-How d'ye do, Mr. Thornton ?" '['Thank ye, Sir," replied the man ager, " that's the very thing I wanted." He went back and claimed his letters'.
